"hannity" starts right here, right now. >> it's clear the democrats spell blood in the water. if a deal is not reached by january 1st, a series of defense budget cuts will mean massive tax hikes reaching every american. we've seen democrats from the president on down using the so-called crisis to ram their left wing agenda down your throat. they want bigger taxes, bigger government. for example, take a look. >> if despite the dangers of going over the fiscal cliff and what that means for our economy, that there's too much stubbornness in congress, that we can't even agree on giving middle-class families a tax cut, then middle-class families are all going to end up having a big tax hike. that's going to be a pretty rude shock for them, and i suspect will have a big impact on the holiday shopping season, which in turn will have an impact on business planning and hiring, and we can go back into a recession. >> sean: republicans hate big beared and santa claus. don't buy this hype, such as letting the bus

about the idea of going off the fiscal cliff. alan krueger, the chairman of president obama's economic advisers, he spoke about what would happen if we go off this so-called fiscal cliff. in this report put out by the white house, american consumers will spend 200 billion less in 2013 if the fiscal cliff is not averted according to this white house report. jay carney went on to say in this press briefing that president obama believes and understands that in order to achieve a deal, a compromise, that everybody has to make tough choices and he remains committed. but this is what he said about social security -- the white house is less interested in tackling the rising costs of social security during the current talks. so that is what is the latest coming out of the white house on the fiscal cliff talks. the two sides not scheduled to meet face to face. as you heard from the prevent of the congressional leaders are the weekend and the two sides separately meeting this week in washington with business leaders and as we said, unions are planning protests on capitol hill. a lot to talk abou

it now? the obama administration will have an opportunity to look at these proposals in november and december and hopefully decide to take advantage of them and use them next year. also i am hopeful and will recommend that this not just be administrative action. congress should implement this, too. beyond that, we will have the proper recommendations with regard to other issues of security, jobs, efficiencies, innovation. this is such an important part of our economy in america. if we do not do it in the right way, we will make mistakes. when you legislate an atmosphere of crisis, where you have a mess on your hands, you quite often do not do it very well. yes, we are experiencing some good times in energy diversity now. it seems to me now is the opportunity and a fantastic time of challenge for us to develop an overall, the national energy policy to pull things together and plan for the future and not wait for another crisis. another crisis will come. when you look at the impact of energy throughout the world, what is happening with us and how we are all interrelated, it is obvi

that they used to get president obama reelected to get a fiscal deal done, the white house is focussed on the middle class, they call senators, and house machines and tell them, -- house numbers, telling them, uncertainty is killing me but they fail to mention that tax hike with fiscal cliff, president obamaments tax hikes on those making more than $2 theft thousand a year, that will affect their middle class that their job creat creators the nor be able to pay them. neil: the train has left that spending station. i should say that taxes will go up. leaving that aside. how do you make the argument that a deal by the end of the year, even if it is bad, is better than no deal, if ratings agents pounce on a crafty deal, let's say waded toward tax hikes not addressinggspending cuts, wouldn't credit agency seize on that and downgrade us just the same? >> absolutely. this is what we saw with debt ceiling last summer, we saw our credit rating go down. and if you want to talk about that, white house tapped tim geithner today, treasury secretary to head the fiscal talks, he is the one that said

do about any of what he promised to do so let's look at the three obama promises. the first promise was in his first term when he said he will find a solution for the palestinian-israeli issue, and, unfortunately, we know what happened over the four years. that has not been that. it's an unfulfilled promise at best. some see it as a failed promise. the second promise the president of the united states had, unprecedented as it is, when he said the united states would never allow iran to be a nuclear power. now, this is unprecedented whether right or wrong, but it's something that was done not only during the elections, but a statement made by the president more than once, and i think it was in connection of promises made also to the israeli prime minister. how, will president obama fulfill the promise? wiggle out of it? absolutely implement it whether it's militarily or through containment policy, and what are they doing from my point of view, one of the reasons or a fascinating part about the gaza operation is that, a, they are giving hamas a lead in creating the new dynamics or dic

they want. if reagan and o'neill could do it, obama and boehner should be able to do it. >> it's the right approach, the one most beneficial for our economy, that protects the middle class and strengthens it and creates ladders of opportunity for those who aspire to the middle, to get there. >> it's time for the president to present a plan that rises above the reckless and radical voices on the hard left, that goes beyond the talking points of the campaign trail, and that has a realistic chance of passing the congress. the time, in other words, for campaigning is over. it's time for the president to lead. >> when you're $16 trillion in debt, the only pledge we should be making to each other is to avoid becoming greece. and republicans should put revenue on the table. so i agree we shouldn't raise rates, but grover is wrong when it comes to we can't cap deductions and buy down debt. what do you do with the money? i will violate the pledge, long story short, for the good of the country, only if democrats will do entitlement reform. >> greta: and senator lindsey graham joins us. before we get

to be off the table. those democrats do not include president obama who has made it clear he's open to a discussion about medicare and medicaid. and you usually would think there's not enough time to do serious entitlement reform. but the fact is, we've been talking about this set of issues for a year and more, lots of blueprints out there, including simpson/bowles. i think it is possible that will be part of a deal that is reached before the end of the year. >> this morning, dick durbin didn't really want to get into specifics. you aren't hearing a lot of numbers from a lot of people, but did say he was encouraged. take a listen. >> if i sound bland and general at this point, it's exactly to the point he made. when the doors close and we sit down with revenue on one side, entitlements on the other, then we get specific and come up with a bipartisan plan. >> ryan, to susan's point of who is the president talking to, is this something to be hashed out between president obama and john boehner. >> i guess so. because dick durbin himself has been confusing in what he's been saying publi
